Islamic Banking has the same purpose as conventional banking except that it claims to operate in accordance with the rules of shariah, known as Fiqh al-Muamalat (“Islamic rules” on transactions). The basic principle of Islamic banking is sharing of profit and loss, and the prohibition of riba’ (interest). Amongst the common Islamic concepts used in Islamic banking are profit sharing (Mudharabah), safekeeping (Wadiah), joint venture (Musharakah), cost plus (Murabahah), and leasing (Ijarah).
